Healthy Heart, ‘Wolves Get Fit’
Pelican Rapids Viking elementary school students have been busy staying fit, participating in two programs: ‘The Timberwolves Get Fit’ and ‘Healthy Hearts Fundraising.’
Students were asked to be active for 25 minutes in the Timberwolves program and earn 1 point. If they earned the qualifying point level of 25 and/or 50 or more points, students’ names were sent in to be given a Timberwolves game ticket as participants. Students listed below earned tickets to see the Timberwolves in action.
Kids Healthy Heart fundraising participants did another outstanding job raising funds for the American Heart Association to help provide funds to develop educational programs for youth and adults, cardiovascular system research, and related therapy services.
Students raised over $1,000 in less than 14 days (including three snowstorms), reported Viking phy ed teacher Shari Meester.
Viking Elementary School is grateful to have students willing to help raise funding for others that may have cardiovascular health issues.
In the Healthy Hearts Fundraisers, a total of $1,514.02 was raised.
